Fall in coastal Carolina will be here soon and the Friends of the Kaminski House Museum and Anderson Brothers Bank have two events planned to get you out into the cooler weather to help wrap up the 2014 Made in the Shade Concert Series.
An Evening with Kevin Jayroe will complete the 2014 concert series.
Jayroe is a local favorite, who will perform an array of Broadway hits, movie classics and contemporary songs accompanied by the band, After Five.
Jayroe and the band are crowd pleasers and you will not want to miss out on a single note.
The concert is set for the lawn of the Kaminski House Museum on Sat., Oct. 11, at 5 p.m.
The final lecture for this year’s series will feature Dr. Dale Rosengarten at the Stewart Parker House on Fri., Sept. 12, at noon.
Dr. Rosengarten will present “Georgetown Jews: From First Families to Front Street.”
She is the founding director of the Jewish Heritage Collection at the College of Charleston Library.
The lectures require RSVP. Bag lunches will be provided by Kudzu Bakery and will be available for $8.50 with prior reservation by calling the Kaminski House Museum at 843-546-7706.

Constructed circa 1769, the Kaminski House Museum was home to many prominent Georgetown residents.
The home’s pre-Revolutionary War architectural details are an elegant background to the varied interiors that help bring to life Harold and Julia Pyatt Kaminski, the home’s last residents.
Mrs. Kaminski left the house and its contents to the city of Georgetown upon her death in 1972. It was opened as a house museum in 1973. The museum was operated by the city of Georgetown for many years. The Friends of the Kaminski House assumed management of the Kaminski House on July 1, 2013.
Located at 1003 Front St., the Kaminski House Museum is open Monday-Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Tours are given at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. Admission is $7 (an additional $3 for a tour of the adjoining Stewart Parker House). For more information, call 843-545-4067.
